A friend and I had their amazing brunch with unlimited bellinis and enjoyed our waitress' sense of humor.

My whole family loved their meals, the wine was flowing & service good. All of our pasta dishes were delicious and nicely presented. Located in a nice area to walk around at night to explore downtown Bethel Ct.

Everything about LaZingara is top drawer: the service, the food, the prices, the ambiance. It's perfect for special occasions as well as an every-now-and-again treat.

We tried LA Zingara for the first time with friends and we're not disappointed. They offer a diverse selection including some unique specials. I had the wild boar over pasta (penned vodka), which was delicious. The fried calamari was some of the best anywhere. Wine list offers a wide selection of mostly Italian wines at all price points. Service was... More

We were two couples and we all had the $35.00 dinner specials. They all were absolutely delicious!! It was one of the best price fixed meals ever. The service was attentive in a relaxed atmosphere. I started with the kale salad, then had the most delicious salmon. For desert I was served not one but two cannoli. I only wish... More

Not your typical Italian restaurant in an area with probably hundreds of Italian restaurants, and I'm not sure (in this case) if it's a good thing. The menu is different from any Italian restaurant in Fairfield County. Check their on line menu to see what I mean. The food is tasty but without the robust flavor that most Italian food... More

went with another couple for dinner after Bethel Cinema. We were seated promptly but waited quite a long time to place an order. Server could not answer rather basic questions about menu choices. Chose the lamb (a special that evening I believe) and we waited a LONG time to be served. My lamb special was so tough I sent it... More

I have had this dish in Korea, and several places in the US and none compared to the texture, taste and presentation this dish and meal did. Excellent

Very nice looking restaurant. We went on a saturday night and it was very busy. Very noisey, could hardly hear my wife. We had to yell. The food was nothing special. Mediocre italian. Pasta dishes were ok. Small portions. Kinda expensive.
